Sorry I did not know that. I will type it again now.
I was told that H.264 is a Unoversal format, but to make it play to Blu-Ray standards, you must use H.264 Blu-Ray. If not, it may not play in all Blu-Ray type players.
The same goes for MPEG-2 Vs. MPEG-2 DVD.
Is this true.

Thanks in adavance (Again, sorry about the copy and paste, it won't happen again)
A DVD is much lower resolution than a BluRay... so, to "make it play to Blu-Ray standards" you need to use a BluRay setting
While you should be able to use a DVD specification file on a BluRay... it is certainly not going to be at a BluRay resolution
I think I'm right in saying that the difference between H 264 and H264 Bluray is that in straight H264 the audio is multiplexed in with the video and in the Bluray version it is rendered out as two separate files. If I'm wrong I'm sure someone will correct me.
to phrase the answer another way...
h.264 for Bluray is a subset of the full h.264 standard.
Why? Because it has constrictions on it so that the bluray player's silicon-chip h.264 decoder doesn't have to be overly complicated (thus cheaper)..
So, while a non bluray h.264 stream MAY play on a bluray player, it isn't EXPECTED too.
As an example - if you compare the h.264 to the h.264 bluray columns you'll see that h.264 has "Levels" 3.0...5.2 but BR only has a subset of those. Likewise for the "Profile" and Screen Resolutions @ specific FrameRates.
Note that both are h.264/AVC encodings, it's just that the BD version is allows far less combinations of settings.
